Poll: Would You Eat a Burger for Breakfast?


Buried in an article about Wendy's introducing the unfortunately title new "Dave's Hot 'n Juicy Burger," named after the fast-food chain's late founder Dave Thomas, who surely deserves better than this, is this tidbit:

[CEO Roland] Smith also hinted at the possibility that Wendy's might offer burgers for breakfast, saying the chain has learned from the breakfast tests that there is demand for burgers "as early as 8 or 9 a.m."
Really? I certainly believe that some people would happily eat a burger for breakfast, but is there "demand"? On the other hand, is it that different from a meat-cheese-egg breakfast sandwich?

What say you, loyal Gut Check readers. All things being equal, (i.e., it wasn't the only option available), would you eat a burger for breakfast?
